Every day, children are born with muscular dystrophy and adults are diagnosed with ALS and other life-threatening diseases that take away their most basic freedoms - like walking, talking, eating, hugging, and ultimately life itself. I'm raising money to help MDA fight back!
MDA has recently launched a service learning program called MDA Muscle Corps. I have chosen to participate and through this program, I will help raise needed funds to help give these abilities back through early intervention, local engagement, and the search for better treatments and cures. MDA is on the front lines fighting for families during the global pandemic and I have chosen to stand alongside the MDA to ensure all families have equal access to the care they need today, and into the future.
DECA has been instrumental in supporting neuromuscular diseases for more than 30 years, raising $5 million dollars to fuel MDA’s mission. The money we raise will help children and adults in our community, and will also help support innovative research to change the future for people with neuromuscular disease.
